Album of the Day
After brilliant stints with the Jeff Beck Group and the Faces and several outstanding solo albums, Rod Stewart moved to Los Angeles in 1974 and signed with Warner Bros. Records. ROD STEWART 1975-1978 reflects the burst of creativity that followed, starting with ATLANTIC CROSSING, produced (along with Stewart's next three albums) by the legendary Tom Dowd. That four-album late-'70s run was one of the performer's most successful; after his label debut was certified gold, A NIGHT ON THE TOWN went double-platinum, and FOOT LOOSE & FANCY FREE went triple-platinum, as did follow-up BLONDES HAVE MORE FUN - Stewart's first #1 album. Along with newly remastered versions of these, the new five-LP boxed set ROD STEWART 1975-1978 includes a bonus disc of 10 outtakes selected from the recording sessions for all four albums.
